Consult a physician or psychiatrist. They will guide you. Dont use sleeping pills by yourself.. each condition requires different pills.
Did she have a traumatic emotional event recently?
Is she irritable? Violent? Talking irrelevant? To check many things in this condition.

Exercise and stay active. Activity helps promote a good night's sleep. Get at least 20 to 30 minutes of vigorous exercise daily at least five to six hours before bedtime...Avoid caffeine after lunchtime...Avoid large meals and beverages before bed. A light snack is fine. But avoid eating too much late in the evening to reduce the chance of gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) and improve sleep. Drink less before bedtime so that you won't have to urinate as often...Consult nearest physician they will help you further.
